The CCD's Homeless Action Team (HAT) is a specially trained group of community service representatives (CSRs). HAT members encourage and assist homeless individuals to get into appropriate facilities where they can find shelter and necessary social services.
HAT responds to calls from retail businesses and building managers and patrols Center City on a daily basis. In addition to HAT, every CSR is trained to engage our homeless clients and offer them assistance in contacting the Outreach Coordination Center to help them receive services.
The CCD's HAT team has partnered with Project Home and Philadelphia Police to create combined outreach teams that help people living on the streets connect with services and shelter. Learn more.
